Prairie Pal: oh my god....it's full of stars!
Clint thank you for getting that!!

There are other DYI solutions that are way better at little or no cost. Get this crap post out of here.
My thanks to the author. Very well paced and clearly explained.
random78: It might be the engineering team but these were typical marketing answers. Standard responses like "DX and FX are equally important to us", "we don't see DX as consumer and FX as professional", but "we won't talk about whether we are working on a high-end APS-C model". Similarly "our quality control is great and we don't feel the need for AF tuning on D5000/D3000 type bodies", even though the higher end bodies which should have at least as good if not better quality control do have this feature. etc. Not unexpected at all of course. Canon/Nikon rarely reveal anything about their product plans. Perhaps the only thing of substance was the admission that we were slow on D600 response and learnt from it.

Prairie Pal: Rather than this piece of conceptual art, I would rather see 3rd parties offering compact affordable flashes for MFT and cords for off camera ttl. About the size of the Nikon SB400. I hate those tiny kit flashes that draw from the camera battery.
It works but its much bigger than I want, and not that cheap...in Canada anyway ($335). It is more affordable than Olympus speedlites. I had the Nissin di466 for MFT and that was just too big too (I want to use a MFT flash on my Olympus compact XZ-2 as well...which works)
Glen Barrington: Well THAT was a big pile of nothing, that makes me MORE concerned about Nikon's future, not less. It has been my experience that when I get that much meaningless doublespeak, somebody is hiding something.
After that I am ever more confident with my gradual migration from all things Nikon after 35 years. Hiding behind the "interlocutors" is just another brick in the wall that Nikon is building between themselves and the consumer. I went from confused to amused to disgusted and finally angry. They're either arrogant or they are too ashamed to admit they are completely lost.

Prairie Pal: How hard can it be to design an endoscope? It's basically a GoPro attached to a rubber hose.
@Photoman- butt I'm talking about a smaller gentler version. :) I guess I'm just wondering why everyone from Casio to Ricoh hasn't thrown their hat into the ring with cheap alternatives, like single use cameras. I'm only guessing, but I would think that the cost to sterilize the unit between exams is pretty steep as would be the cost of materials needed to withstand the heat during the cleaning process.

4,5,8 are outstanding. But I like them all. Tongue in cheek and surrealism I like.
Johannes Zander: American gunman style!
Oh thanks. Just when I though I had finally got whoopem gangnam style out of my head.
If you're going to go to all the trouble the result shouldn't look like a poorly photo-shopped composite.
Magnificent sharpening and noise control. I was surprised upon seeing the equipment exif. Nice all'round!
Interesting! Your reflection caught me off guard while I was focusing on the rest of the image
justmeMN: AF is for wimps. :-) My Pentax film camera didn't have no newfangled AF, and it worked just fine. :-)
Maybe the "something extra" will be a few manual focus enhancements. Such as available focusing screens with multi-point microprisms. Or audible focus confirmation while manually focusing coupled with auto shutter release upon focus acquisition.
LeitzKameraAktion: I'm intrigued Mr Iida doesn't rule out Fuji making a Monochrome X camera. I'd DEFINITELY buy one - click the 'Like' button if you would too!
CLICK - THIS - LIKE - BUTTONI will start
The body sponsoring the contest can put any restrictions and rules they please on the entries. They set the playing field and then invite participants to do their best while working within the boundaries. I can't see why so many people have a problem with that.Another body of photographers can create an entirely different contest with different rules or even no rules. Pick the contest you want to work within and go with it.
Disqualified: 4-6-9-10. These are Landscapes."Garden" to me implies areas with plants that have been collected and maintained.#8 is creative genius. Classic composition and subjective tools cleverly applied.
Very nice image quality at first glance. The lens seems to stand up in the hands of a creative and thoughtful photographer. Thanks to Samuel for the extra effort he gave to show how the lens would perform if it's used by a landscape photographer's eye.
